I own an E-M1 and an X-T1. I'll probably sell the E-M1, but it's not a clear choice.

Bottom line?

E-M1: Faster focusing and more responsive

X-T1: Nicer optics and images

I like the looks of the X-T1 images so much, that I'll deal with the slower speed and handling.

Another thing that occurs to me, is that all of the pictures were shot in very low light at an average of ISO 6400. Perhaps that is why my focusing experience was less than optimal.

I have to wonder if the Fuji is really all that much slower... maybe it's worth doing some kind of more controlled test with the two. I do seem to remember that the Fuji got pretty high marks for AF in the ratings here. 
As for the tendency of the Fuji to make skin tones a little too smooth.... I have to wonder how images from this camera look for other kinds of things. If it's just an issue with how it deals with skin tones, there might be a pretty easy post processing trick to fix just that. Something that would be worth the hassle if everything else about the images are making you happy....
